[image]Wind and Reflections From Black Hole in Galaxy NGC 1068 - NASA/Marshall Space Flight Center
Chandra X-Ray Observatory provided this composite X-ray (blue and green) and optical (red) image of the active galaxy NGC 1068 showing gas blowing away in a high-speed wind from the vicinity of a central supermassive black hole. Regions of intense star formation in the irner spiral arms of the galaxy are highlighted by both optical and x-ray emissions. A doughnut shaped cloud of cool gas and dust surrounding the black hole, known as the torus, appears as the elongated white spot ...

This image from the Digitized Sky Survey (DSS)/Palomar 48-inch Schmidt telescope shows NGC 1128 in visible light. The peculiar dumbbell structure of this galaxy is thought to be due to two large galaxies that are in the process of merging. Such mergers are common in the relatively congested environment of galaxy clusters. An alternative hypothesis is that the apparent structure is the result of a coincidence in time when the two galaxies are passing one another, like ships in the cosmic sea.

This picture was taken through a narrow band filter with HST's Wide Field and Planetary Camera (WF/PC). The image was then computer processed to show additional detail in the clouds of ionized gas in the nucleus of NGC 1068. Clouds as small as 10 light-years across are clearly resolved in the central 150 light-years of the core...

MPEG This sequence begins with a wide-field, visible light view (yellow) of the Fornax galaxy cluster. Next, it zooms into the region Chandra observed in X-rays (blue). Scientists think the core of the cluster, labeled as NGC 1399, is moving to the lower right on a collision course with another group of galaxies seen only in the optical data. This indicates that the cluster lies along a large, unseen, filamentary structure composed mostly of dark matter that is pulling everything toward it...

[image]Spitzer Sees Water Loud and Clear - NASA/JPL-Caltech/Univ. of Roch.
This plot of infrared data, called a spectrum, shows the strong signature of water vapor deep within the core of an embryonic star system, called NGC 1333-IRAS 4B. The data were captured by NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope using an instrument called a spectrograph. A spectrograph collects light and sorts it according to color, or wavelength. In this case, infrared light from NGC 1333-IRAS 4B was broken up into the wavelengths listed on the horizontal axis of the plot...

As the cocoon collapses under its own weight in an inside-out fashion, a stellar embryo forms at the center surrounded by a dense, dusty disk. The stellar embryo "feeds" from the disk for a few million years, while material in the disk begins to clump together to form planets...

Located 1,000 light-years from Earth in the constellation Perseus, a reflection nebula called NGC 1333 epitomizes the beautiful chaos of a dense group of stars being born. Most of the visible light from the young stars in this region is obscured by the dense, dusty cloud in which they formed. With NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope, scientists can detect the infrared light from these objects. This allows a look through the dust to gain a more detailed understanding of how stars like our sun begin th...
